Can Buffalo take the next step forward and solidify an identity as an emerging basketball power? That's the question facing the Bulls as they take on Arizona State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday.

 

Arizona State enters the game with major momentum after crushing St. John's 74-65 in the First Four on Wednesday. The Sun Devils held the Red Storm to 25 first-half points on 30 percent shooting and led by double digits for most of the game.

Even after losing his top three players from last season, Bobby Hurley is confident that his Arizona State squad is poised to be even better in 2018-19. At a minimum, it should be more talented. 


The Sun Devils boast a program-record eight players who were four-star recruits when they arrived in Tempe, four of whom are incoming freshmen. 
ASU will be a longer, more athletic team, particularly in the backcourt, where replacing outgoing guards Shannon Evans, Tra Holder and Kodi Justice will be the biggest challenge.

In or Out: NCAA Tournament Bubble Watch

Even in the last few days, bubble season has taken an unexpected turn.

A week ago, a bubble watch would have had West Virginia and St. John’s on the outskirts of the NCAA Tournament. A few big wins later, and one of those teams is projected in our field.

By our count, 32 teams are “feeling good” for an at-large bid. Barring a major collapse, these teams should be in the NCAA Tournament field. With 22 teams accounting for automatic bids settled in conference tournaments, that leaves 14 spots for the bubble.

The new faces that will dominate the discussion in the preseason in the Pac-12 may be the new coaches in Los Angeles. In a quiet coaching carousel, UCLA’s Steve Alford and USC’s Andy Enfield were two of the biggest movers.

But they might not be the biggest movers among new faces in the Pac-12.
